The results of experiments on the self-organization of fullerene C60/70 molecules both inside a xylene solution and in the volume of a drying drop of C60/70 solution on a flat substrate surface are presented. The studies of C60/70 solution using transmission electron microscopy and UV–Vis absorption spectroscopy methods revealed the possibility of synthesis of porous fractal quasispherical clusters with a diameter of ~300÷800 nm at concentration of C60/70 in xylene 2.6·10−4 mol·L−1. It has been shown by scanning electron microscopy method that large nanoclusters and nanostructured coatings based on them are formed in the volume of an evaporating droplet of a colloidal solution of fullerene C60/70 sessile on the surface of a flat glass substrate.
